TAIPING: Another Barisan Nasional MP has dropped a bombshell by announcing that he is leaving the coalition.

Bukit Gantang MP Datuk Syed Abu Hussin Hafiz Syed Abdul Fasal (pic) is the latest to quit Umno and Bari­san, citing his unhappiness over infighting in the ongoing party elections.

He is the second Barisan leader to quit, four days after the departure of Bagan Serai MP Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali.

Syed Abu Hussin, 57, said he had no plans to join another party and would remain as an independent MP, which takes effect from July 1.

“There is no more stability and control in the party.

“I will submit my resignation letter as Bukit Gantang Umno division chief today to the Umno headquarters.

“I hope my decision will be accepted by voters and the people of Bukit Gantang,” he told a press conference at the Bukit Gantang Umno operations room yesterday.

Syed Abu Hussin said he was saddened that the Wanita and Youth wings in his division did not accept the majority decision to elect a new leadership line-up by way of discussions and negotiations.
